What should I expect for a 3D printed model?
Resin options have had any supports already removed, but prints may sometimes have small blemishes left. Additional sanding or cleaning may be required.
PLA options have had any supports already removed, with minimal or no blemishes left. Areas with overhangs may require additional clean up. Terrain with larger print layers will be covered up after priming with paint. Miniatures should have barely, if any noticeable layer lines due to the extremely low resolution used.
What color is used for 3D prints?
We usually use a grey/silver color, but might use an alternative that may be closer to the base color of a particular piece, such as light blue for ice terrain, green for plants, brown for wood, etc. Regardless of the 3D printed color, you can prime and paint to whatever end color you wish. Contact us if you wish for a print to be a certain base color and we'll do our best to accommodate.
Do these models come painted?
No, all models come as printed off of the 3D printer, usually in a grey/silver color.
What layer resolution are models printed at?
Most of the models are printed at 28 mm scale. Depending on the terrain, it is printed at .20 mm to .10 mm layer height with a FDM 3D printer. Miniature models are printed at .07 mm layer height in order to capture more detail since they are usually smaller. If you want items printed at thinner layer heights or have questions, please contact us for adjusted order pricing.
Is SLA resin printing offered?
Yes! This is recommended for smaller models such as smaller miniatures. Miniatures usually have a resin offering except for the largest of figures due to print bed limitations.
How fast do I get my models?
We are a print on demand service. Once your order is placed, it will be placed into the queue to print. Depending on the size of the order and models purchased, it can take a few days to print. We aim to ship within 2 weeks.
What scale are models printed at?
Models are usually printed at the default 100% scale as given to us by the 3D designers, with exceptions noted. If you want items printed at an alternate scale, please contact us for adjusted order pricing.
Can you print STL files that are not listed on the website, including non-tabletop gaming items?
We sure can! If there is something that you find that interests you and want 3D printed, please contact us for pricing. Please also see the Custom 3D Printing page.
